Balau (also known as Bangkirai) is a highly valued tropical hardwood species. Color can be variable ranging from a pale straw color, to a darker reddish brown. Balau’s texture is very fine and even. Due to its high oil content wood is very durable and weather resistant. CARE: wood is a living product that changes and ages over time. Clean the furniture regularly, protect from excess moisture and UV radiation. A light sanding and new oil film at least once a year is sufficient to give furniture fresh look again.
